Best Back to School Organization Gear-Friday’s LiLu Look of the Day
Friday's LiLu Look of the Day is all about Back to School Organization! Home organization is key to starting the new school year off right. Whether you have one kid or ten it is hard to manage the schedules, getting ready in the morning, arriving home at night to a hungry household, juggle after school activities and not to mention homework! Here are a few tips to help you get on top of your organization this year!
Have a "Drop Zone"
On Wednesday's Blog, we talked about a command center and this would be a perfect place to set a tray or basket for each person in the household for important items such as forms needing filled out or projects to look at. Making it portable makes it easier to bring to the table or sit together on the sofa to talk things through.
Have a home for all things
Hooks are genius and easy ways to hang coats, bags, sporting equipment...the list is endless. Who says they have to be boring? Have some fun with these hooks we found below at some places like OneFortyThree and West Elm.
Food Organization is just as important
Make sure it is simple and efficient to pack a lunch or snacks for the family. These totes make it simple to carry your food as well as the stainless steel containers below. Get rid of plastic and try a new, safer way!
Have a BIG Wall Calendar
Sure we all have our phones and we can sync them together but having a family visual at the command center can just be another way to keep everyone on the same page. Have everyone glance on it before they head out to make sure you don't miss the big game or pick up someone from Band Practice.
